Bartok: String Quartets Nos. 1 - 6 (2CD)

Indisputably one of the cornerstones of the string quartet repertoire as well as one of the masterpieces of the 20th century, Bartók’s six string quartets have been labelled ‘the greatest quartets since Beethoven’. Now, for the first time, the six quartets have been compiled onto two (rather than three) CDs with scholarly notes by Arnold Whitall. When issued as a set on LP, it won the Gramophone Award for Best Chamber Music Recording.
